Shiraz Petit Verdot

February 2, 2008

Note to self: seek out some Shiraz Petit Verdot (click here for reviews with tasting notes). This based on a review, Camden Park Shiraz Petit Verdot – (2/2/2008), that popped up on

LoveThatWine labeled it a Really bold red, which suits WineMad well.

2006 Altos Las Hormigas Malbec Mendoza – $10

I have always had a weakness for inexpensive fruity rustic Malbecs, great QPR.

The next two were good – better reviews than I can muster are available via the WineMad search results, just click on the wines to run the searches – but the QPR was not so great on these. Of the two, the Girard had better structure, perhaps it might benefit from a couple years laying down :

2006 Mollydooker Wines Shiraz Cabernet Merlot Two Left Feet – $25
2005 Girard Winery Petite Sirah Napa Valley – $26
